What do you get when you cross a Chevrolet K5 Blazer with a Pontiac Fiero and Ferrari Testarossa? A Fierrari of course. Offered for just $9,500 on Craigslist a few months ago, the bizarre vehicle is now headed to the 2020 Barrett Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The only original part left on this vehicle is its shell, as even the engine is no longer mounted mid-mounted, but has been moved up front. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Abimelec Design transformed a Ford Mustang Foxbody into a Ferrari F40 knockoff of sorts, but it wasn’t easy. The designer had to first lower the Ford’s roofline and then add flared fenders to give it the wide stance of its Italian counterpart. Out back, they equipped it with an F40-inspired rear wing before adding a Lexan panel over the engine bay. Read more for additional pictures and information.
Tuning shop Prior Design specializes in supercars and other exotics, like the Lamborghini Urus. To start, they wrapped the vehicle in a matte black and then added a custom hood, flared carbon fiber wheel arches, bespoke side skirts, front bumper / diffuser, secondary lip spoiler as well as a large roof spoiler. If you want something even more sporty, Prior can finish the flared arches in exposed carbon or paint it to match the rest of the body. Read more for a video and additional information.
Let’s face it, the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons have earned a poor reputation due to their joystick drift issues, but one gamer wanted to solve this issue in the most creative way possible. So, Shank Mods decided to take apart a Wavebird wireless controller and transform it into a pair of functional Joy-Cons that work just like the original, including the shoulder buttons for shared-screen multiplayer, but minus infrared functionality.

The last thing that would probably come to mind when seeing a 1988 Pontiac Fiero on the streets is a 996-generation Porsche 911, but that’s exactly what one owner turned his vehicle into, or at least attempted to. Unfortunately, even the Pontiac 2.8-liter V6 engine remains, but at the very least, it’s been rebuilt with a new clutch, master cylinder, slave cylinder, and battery.

The Nissan GT-R has been dubbed “Godzilla”, but not everyone knows why. One tuning shop that most certainly does is Liberty Walk Japan, and they’ve unveiled their latest creation, the “LB-ER34 Super Silhouette Skyline,” which consists of a full dry carbon widebody kit, complete with ultra flared wheel arches and concave wheels wrapped in Yokohama Advan GT performance tires.

There have been plenty of janky Cybertruck creations, but the Cyberkart by racing brothers Jordan and Ricky Taylor definitely stands out from the rest. Simply put, it’s a standard two-stroke kart covered in U-Haul cardboard boxes with wire shelving used as support. The boxes were duct-taped together, while a layer of aluminum foil mimics the Tesla’s stainless-steel bodywork. Read more for a video and additional information.
The Hoonigan team has partnered with Ken Block for several stunts, but their latest collaboration does not involve any Gymkhana course, but rather a custom-built go-kart powered by an Mercedes-AMG E55 engine. It was created by Shehryar Khan, a time attack driver who started with a normal 2004 Mercedes-AMG E55, but decided on taking the V8 engine out out of it for a faster platform. So, he removed the factory supercharger, installed two turbochargers, and boosted the output to 700hp. Read more for a walkaround video and additional information.

Before the Nissan 350Z, there was the 300ZX, most notably the second-generation “Z32” model, which was redesigned to be faster and feature more advanced technology. One auto enthusiast from Russia decided to turn a 1991 Nissan 300ZX into a Ferrari FXX knockoff of sorts, and despite the latter being mid-engined, the resulting vehicle doesn’t look too bad.
